Project Summary


Mahle/Behr Automotive is a renowned specialist in automotive air conditioning and engine cooling systems. This facility was built to encompass an Office Building, accompanied by a Research and
Development Center.

The original design called for both the Slab on Grade and the Slab on Metal Deck to be reinforced with a 6x6, W2.1/W2.1 wire mesh. The Helix Steel design methodology enabled the total replacement of the wire mesh in both of the slab applications. This was accomplished by adding 9 lb/yd3 of Helix® Micro-Rebar™ reinforcement to the concrete.
